For many students right now we are coming up on Exam Time. Unfortunately that means less sleep, more stress, and tons of homework. I mean, I’ll admit that it is pretty hard to relax when you have teachers throwing assignments at you from all sides, and telling you “this will go on your permanent school records, and will count towards your future,” or some statement along the lines of that. It’s about that time that I begin to freak out a little. And when that stressful time comes, I often put my bible in a corner and forget about it for a while… Even though I know that this is probably when I will need God’s steadying hand in an even bigger way.
And so, as exam time comes I am going to try and take a few minutes everyday, I’m think I will set aside about 20 minutes to deliberately sit quietly, pray, read my bible, journal; whatever it takes to get myself in the mindset of relying on God and to feel his strength working in me. I trust that these moments are when I do my best, all because God is with me.
